only 15 other countries, china, wall street firms were bidding on the debt. now you know if you have an auction at your house and 100 people show up you're probably going to do a lot better in terms of the deal than if 15 people show up. so the cost of money where we run into problems and where congressman paul is right, if we don't deal with this the cost of money is going to wipe out any spending, any tax increases, anything else. we have to -- we can't be greece, we can't be spain. and have our debt equal our gross domestic product. host: from texas. good morning. caller: good morning. i'm so tired of all this immigration stuff and we've got to take care of the mexicans and stuff. how come you all don't find a solution to keep them from coming up here to begin with? and find out why they're all running from mexico. if they're such great people why don't they fight for their own freedom down there instead of trying to come steal our kids' livelihood? host: part of the two-point debate over immigration. those who are here and also border security. guest: again, that's why if you loo

's people. other nations including china north korea's only ally, as issued statement opposing north korea's sanctions actions. here with me is gordon chang he wrote it just for today. welcome to "the war room." >> thank you so much. >> michael: obviously this is big news on a day we have the speech coming up tonight. but what is the significance of this test in a global way. >> north korea has crossed two technical thresh olds. there was the test of the three- three-stage missiles very successful. put a satellite in orbit which means with a few adjustments it could land anywhere. then we have this powerful explosion today. if it was a miniature device as the north koreans said, that's even more impressive. probably between five years maybe three, north korea could put a dent anywhere it wants to on the face of the earth. >> michael: it's interesting too, because kim jung-un. he was a power in 2011. a lot of people saw that he had a western education educated in switzerland, that he would be more reasonable about nuclear arms and arsenal. who is he flexing for? is he flexing for his own c
considering fines and other trade penalties against china and any other nation guilty of cyber attacks. jim angle is live there. where are we on all of this, jim? >> reporter: we know the u.s. does intend to respond after learning that hundreds of cyber attacks on the u.s. government and some 140 u.s. companies are coming from a chinese military unit apparently dedicated to such activities. now the question is, what do we do about it? we can't do much of course to punish the chinese military but officials are saying privately they will take some sort of action such as fines or trade penalties which the white house hinted at yesterday. >> initiatives to announce today. this is an issue that had the attention of the president and senior levels of the national security team. it's something that we are working on constantly, and we will of course take necessary measures to enhance our cyber security. >> reporter: but aside from enhancing our own cyber security, what can the u.s. do? though we can't punish the chinese army unit we can punish chinese companies many of which are partly honed by th
. joining us now is the author of "china airborne" and the national correspondent of the atlantic, james fallows. good afternoon, james. >> thank you for coming on. the chinese came out today and strongly denied all of these allegations. should they be believed? is this just a case of threat inflation as we like to call it? >> the chinese statement was in keeping with its government's usual response to accusations like this. they said that they never have endorsed hacking of anybody else, they resolutely enforce their laws. there's no violation of privacy laws in china. i think that's difficult to take seriously. i think the main point here is that for decades, for more than a decade now, there have been increasing both government and corporate concerns in the u.s. about hacking from a lot of places, including china, and the news in this latest report is tying it more specifically to the chinese military than had been done in the previous encounters. >> now, they appear to have targeted companies like facebook, apple, twitter and google among others. isn't this an indication that they we
actions against china for what is portrayed as unrelenting campaign of cyber theft and espionage. but chief national correspondent jim angle reports washington is being careful about what it is saying. >> with the revelations this week of chinese cyber espionage against u.s. government and company, administration officials emerm to talk about broad program to crack down on cyber spying an announce nod action against the recent chinese intrusion, even as they talk about how danieling such spying could be. >> a trade secret could be worth billions of dollars. they could require companies to lay off employees, close factories and profits to experience decline in the position andnage or go out of business. >> he emphasized no company is safe. >> there are only two categories of companies affected by the trades secret theft. those that know they have been compromised and those that don't know it yet. >> it fell for the state department to talk about the chinese government, though not the most recent revelation. >> protection of the intellectual property and the trade secret remains a
, if they were particularly frightened they would have not tested in the first place. they realize china will protect them? security council. china will not enforce any sanctions that come out of this process. so the usual drill as susan rice said is not good enough. that means the united states needs to take matters in its own hands. we need to put in effect the sanctions the bush administration imposed in 2005 and unfortunately lifted prematurely in 2007 at china's behest. we have to stop north korea from selling this long-range missiles and these nuclear devices to iran. which of means we probably need our navy in waters very close to north korean shores. jon: stop leaning on the chinese to fresh sure the north koreans? >> we should do that but shouldn't rely on that as the only way. in the bush administration we really looked to china to rein in north korea, unfortunately we placed a greater emphasis integrating china into the international system than disarming north korea. we need to disarm that. we need to disarm north korea first. because we have only a limited numbers of years t
not willing to do because of china. we can -- people say north korea's been sanctioned out, nothing more we can do. that's not true. in 2005 the united states put on the financial sanctions which hut north korea. we took them off in 2007, so there is a lot more than we can do. >> are you seeing changes in china. very supportive. but here is the -- an article, an editorial that ran in the china state-run newspaper "global times." if north korea insists on a third nuclear test despite attempts to dissuade it, it must pay a heavy price. we are not advocating giving up the sino/north korea friendship. but pyongyang shouldn't misread china, china won't put its relations with pyongyang above other strategic interests. that's fairly harshly worded. >> it is. a good rhetorical shift. we need china to go for tough sanctions and enforce those sanctions. right now, china has been letting the north koreans sell a lot of missile technology to the iranians, crossing over chinese territory. april 15th last year, in the big military parade in pyongyang, six chinese missile launchers sold to pyongyang. we n
china has more than doubled its investment in developing new agricultural technologies. those are the kinds of fort decided policies that are enabling china to emerge as a world power and in which we frankly need to get back to. as we shift our focus and our resources towards smarter, more constructive forms of international interaction, it is critical that feed security remained at the center of shading a secure world. when it comes to diplomacy, that means forging stronger public, private, and government-to- government relations, like usaid's promised to feed the future initiative, and focus on local solutions to enable countries to take ownership of their own allotment -- development. it means ensuring 500 million farmers can participate meaningfully in democratic and governing their own countries. these farmers often have no voice in their future. more specifically, it means empowering women who represent 43% of small holders and are the majority of farmers now and over 30 countries. land rights and ownership can help women realize their potential, which benefits families,
balance almost $30 billion, at $29.5 billion. for the second year in a row, china is our major export destination. since two thousand five, exports to china have been growing by 25% annually -- since 2005, exports to china have been growing by 25% annually. no surprise, it is dominated by soybeans and cotton. they have accounted, in recent years, as much as 3/4 of trade to china. if you look at the minor, but still large other exports, for things like coarse grains, corn , feeds and funders, distiller dried grains, or red beets -- red meats, those are showing impressive growth figures as well. in terms of overall exports, values are up for most of the commodity categories. these are exports on a fiscal year basis. you can see that up for most of these categories, with the exception being corn. these are price-driven events. we see volumes up for some categories. for most of the individual commodity categories, we are seeing lower volume. the drought is having some effect. for most commodities, that is being offset by higher prices, whose values are up. the big difference, obviously, i
. if we could get the economy rolling, if we could get china and other countries that take the business away that we've just handed them on the silver platter and get our country great again. because it's not great right now. then that would take care of a lot of problems, but we're not doing that. you look at what's going on in india, china, so many countries, you look at what opec is doing to us, greta, with fuel. i see on your show, and on other shows where fuel is going to be setting records, records in terms of what's happening, and opec is laughing all the way to the bank. you look at what's happening with this countries, and we're just not going to come back. as somebody that knows what they're doing is in there. >> you used the term ashamed. that we should be ashamed of ourselves unless somebody knows what he's doing is doing the work. i'm curious, why are we in this mess? is it because of incompetence, lack of understanding and it's politics, about winning or a complicated issue? why are we in this mess? >> i think you could say it's all of the above, it's interesting and we're

on this group. it is one of 20 groups we trace back to china origins amongst other groups that we follow. but in the report, we lay out you know, 60 pages of detailed findings. it is very data thick and analysis thick over 3,000 digital indicators to help detect and find the threats. in the report, we build up the case for why we believe that this is traced back to the pla the people's liberation army inside of china in particular inside of their third department second bureau which is a unit we call -- a unit that is called 61398. >> bill: in addition to the "new york times," who else were they targeting? >> they've targeted a lot. we found -- again we've been investigating this for six years. along with other victim -- other attacks. but with this group in particular they've compromised over 141 victims over six years that we had visibility into. what's really interesting is it spanned over 20 different industries. we had victims from public affairs to construction, aerospace education legal engineering, electronics i.t., the list goes on and on. >> bill: big names right? i've seen blo
's the headquarters of unit 61398. >> i think it was time to let the world know, it's actually not just from china, it's the chinese government sanctioning these attacks. >> reporter: among the targets, america's very infrastructure. >> now our enemies are sabotaging our power grid, our financial institutions, our air traffic control systems. >> reporter: other targets of chinese hackers familiar brand names like coca-cola, facebook, "the new york times," on "wash post" and "wall street journal." and only today, apple. the hackers have user names like ugly gorilla and dota. according to this instructional video from mandiant. >> here we see dota logging into one of his operational e-mail accounts. he's used it for spear phishing and generating additional accounts. >> reporter: what is it? how hackers campaign access into a network by sending deceptive e-mails tricking users into clicking on a malicious link to a phony website. once the victims provide passwords, pnc.i.n. numbers, they're in. sometimes for years with no one noticing. >> when these companies are engaging in business with china, they're
. clearly there differences of opinion twebetween us and china. he wants to play the role of diplomat and find a way forward with the chinese without confronting the military. i think that's something the obama administration more broad lie believes in. >> he will be leaving on that trip on february 24th through march 6th. a big wide swath for secretary kerry whoa will be marking his mark to start. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we are following breaking news any moment now. the wife of jesse jackson junior will enter a guilty plea to federal tax fraud charges stemming from her husband's misuse of funds. the former congressman entered with his wife before entering his own guilty plea. after that hearing, jackson asked reporters to tell everyone he is sorry. he could be facing several years in prison. the justice correspondent joins me now. this was not a big surprise that we saw this morning. explain what comes next for the congressman as well as his wife. >> he wife will be pleading guilty in a few minutes. they just walked into court holding hands we are told by our producer. jac
to put in a lot of walls. no one is going to send their house off to china to get insulated. that's work to be done here by millions of american workers if we're serious about this. >> john: what lesson do you think president obama learned from the first term about enacting any kind of climate change rules? >> i think he learned there was no point in trying to persuade the republicans to go along because they're not going to. their party has been more or less bought by the same forces that more or less cowed the democratic party. he's going to have to rally his party to do some things. more importantly he'll have to help rally the activist movement that is really coming alive around america. this is all of a sudden a really big push. right now as of yesterday almost out of nowhere we have 252 college campuses with active fossil fuel di veestive movements. the nation last week said this was the largest student movement in the last few decades. we have a huge rally coming to washington on sunday. we've got a movement that wasn't there before. if the president takes advantage of it, if he p

major ally china condemned the underground test in an emergency meeting and considering further sanctions. >> countries around the world including every member of this security council agree that this test was an extremely regrettable act, that further undermines international peace and security. >> nbc news pentagon krontd jim miklaszewski joins us live. we just got a note secretary kerry was informed just before 11:00 p.m. yesterday and he is also spoken with the chinese foreign minister wels japan foreign minister on this issue. what are we likely to hear and see next? >> reporter: the focus is on china. even though china may have joined in condemning the act, the proof is in the pudding. they will have to step up and actually join in enforcing stricter, tighter sanctions against north korea. all this time, while the international community particularly the u.s. has been ratcheting up those sanctions against north korea, china has continued to provide oil and other critical supplies to north korea ignoring the international sanctions. so it really falls on china at this point
korea wants to completely unify it as the republic of south korea. china supplies 90% of the north korea's energy and food and humanitarian systems, convincing younger chinese who already see north korea as a pretty ugly piece of baggage that they could live with a reunified korean peninsula isn't going to be easy, but that's going to be the way to proceed. >> and china says the reason they like the status quo, they're worried that the people from north korea, refugees come into china and is there anything to be said for that the world really would help china deal with the refugee crisis should it arrive? otherwise north korea is marching towards making a deliverable nuclear weapon. that seems abundantly clear. >> the chinese see two problems, i think that's fairly easily resolved. the united states, south korea, japan should say to the chinese we all have an interest if the north korean state collapses and keeping the north koreans in north korea. we ought to cooperate. what the chinese are worried about longer term a reunified korea will see the troops on the olive river and saw that m

not to do. does china now do the ultimate and take really strong sanction measures against their assets? >> right. this is the big question is where is china's red line, and one hopes that it was crossed this time. in addition to all the things you mentioned, andrea, the other thing is that the north koreans did this on chinese new year. in my experience in six-party talks the time that the chinese got the most emotional was when the north koreans were doing things that then pushed that into working during the chinese new year holiday, which is a big holiday in china. i imagine they're pretty upset right now. >> this is what susan rice had to say today. >> north korea's continued work on its nuclear and missile programs seriously undermines regional and international peace and security and threatens the security of a number of countries, including the united states. >> now, you've got the south korean inaugural on february 25th. the state of the union tonight, as you point out the chinese new year, and there's another problem. we don't know yet whether this was plutonium device, which i
the stock market doing fine. that might have a lot more to do with china than what is to happen march 1st. secondly, let's say nothing happens. the unemployment rate is stuck around 8%. this is a pretty lousy time for nothing to happen. in fact, if you look at the cbo projections, the projection with the sequester taking effect is for the unemployment rate to be 7.9% the first half of this year, 8% for the second half of this year. so, basically stuck at a place that's really very disadvantageous for so many workers. >> jared, let me interrupt this colloquy here and ask you, jared, we know that there are other looming fiscal fights, the march 27th deadline for the continuing resolution, but the hill is reporting that the republicans, at least, want this fight to take place on the sequester. i will read you a quote, "we are going to take a stand on the sequester, said a republican senator, the sequester effects programs president obama likes and we think it's the best way to get his attention on spending." which is maybe why you're seeing so much political posturing in the days leading up
china will do as well. >> this is a problem for china, because china generally has a non-interventionist policy. doesn't like to get too deeply involved into the foreign policies of other countries. it doesn't want too many more sanctions on north korea, as north korea has already sort of sanctioned out, for fear that north korea could collapse into anarchy and you'd have refugees flowing over the border. so, yes, this is a challenge for the neighbors. but this is really a message for the united states. you remember last year, north korea tried to launch a satellite into space, and i was in north korea at the time. it went up for about 90 seconds and then blew up. everyone knew at the time, including intelligence officials, that north korea would try again, and that once they got a successful missile launch, they would probably have a nuclear test. because combined, it's very powerful. now, u.s. intelligence officials have told me that north korea right now has probably a dozen to, at the most, several dozen weapons-deliverable nuclear devices. this is a serious challenge
